Learning Escape Blog
At the end of the academic year, we at The Learning Escape are really very proud of all the additional learning space we have created for primary, secondary and early years settings. Here we share pictures of some of these stunning, inspirational eco-classrooms.
Teachers across the UK are relaxing into their well-earned summer break, recharging their energy levels for September and, no doubt, reflecting upon the busy year just passed. The Learning Escape team are also in a reflective mood after an extremely busy, and rewarding, year.
We have recently completed a project that we thought we would share with you, as it was right up our street, so to speak. The Cambridge University Botanic Garden has a long standing commitment to groups seeking gardening inspiration, an introduction to the natural world or an escape into an oasis of calm and beauty.
